The weld-pad (tube skin) termination allows a temperature sensor to be welded directly onto piping or other metal surfaces to sense the surface temperature.
Weld pads are most commonly used in fired heater tubes, refinery heater tubes, boilers and furnaces in refineries, and industrial boilers.
However, they can be used in virtually any application requiring surface temperature measurement. We excel at creating custom designs and engineered solutions to fit your requirements
Choose from a variety of junction styles (knife-edge shaped, transverse shaped, etc.), materials, wrap-around angles, expansion loops, stem lengths, and spring loaded covers.
weld pads allow severe service temperature measurement with minimum drift and minimum radiant heat impingement. Weld Clamps and Retaining Clips complete the assembly.
